The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board said on Monday that the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Board results would start to be released on Tuesday, May 2, 2023.
This was stated in the minutes of the meeting that took place following the emergency management conference that took place over the weekend in Abuja.
The board noted in the minutes that were provided to newsmen on Monday morning that it had waited to announce the results because it wanted to be sure that all required screenings had been completed.
“The Board would be releasing the results of candidates, who have taken the examination so far on Tuesday, 2nd May, 2023. The Board had delayed the release to ensure that all necessary screening are concluded besides ensuring that the mean and standard deviation are reasonably obtained before
releasing these results.
“As candidates check their results on Tuesday, 2nd May, 2023, those who sat the examination but had challenges without being aware of such, would not see their results but would instead see their notification for rescheduled examination,” it said.
“On the first day of the 2023 UTME, a number of candidates in some centres could not sit the examination as well as in some centres in subsequent days due to diverse reasons. Though a reasonable number of them have been rescheduled and have taken the examination, some are yet to take their examination.
“As part of the decisions reached at the end of an emergency management meeting held on Sunday, 31st April 2023, the Board has fixed Saturday, 6th May 2023, for all categories of candidates who have not sat their examination, as listed below, to take their examination,” the board said.
